Pak Army launches Operation Khyber-IV in Rajgal Valley

Pakistan Army with the support of Pakistan Air Force on early Sunday launched massive operation (Khyber-4) against the terrorists, hiding in the most hard hilly terrain of Rajgal Valley in Khyber Agency, Director General Inter Services Public Relations (DGISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor said.

The operation is carried out against ISIS. Twenty two terrorists were also killed. Some 46 major operations have been launched under Radd-ul-Fasaad so far, Ghafoor noted, and more than 1,760 joint checkposts established in coordination with police and other law enforcement agencies. "But Daesh is gaining strength in Afghanistan". He said during 2013-14 about 57 to 66 terrorist incidents were reported and in 2017 only one such incident took place, showing 98pc decline.

Elaborating situation on the Line of Control, Asif Ghafoor said India is committing massive ceasefire violations on LOC to divert world attention from the grave human rights violations and indigenous struggle of Kashmiris in the Occupied Kashmir.

He said operation RUF, launched on February 22 this year with the aim to clear the pockets and signatures of the terrorists inclusive of the abettors, financiers and facilitators to achieve enduring peace. Thirteen major operations and over 800 IBOs were conducted in Balochistan.

He said that a major operation was carried out in Rajgal Valley along Pakistan-Afghan border on Sunday morning.

Egypt Hurghada stabbing: Two Ukrainian tourists killed
Egypt has witnessed many terror attacks since the January 2011 revolution that toppled former president Hosni Mubarak. The attacker in Hurghada stabbed the tourists in the face, neck and feet, according to the security official.

He termed the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) as "very critical for the progress of Pakistan" and said the armed forces would give complete security and will not let it fail at any cost. He said Afghan forces will have to strengthen its footprints on its soil to check the influence of terrorist outfits like DA'ISH.

Construction of the fence has also caused tensions, as Afghanistan does not recognise the colonial-era line as an worldwide border. He said we will also ensure physical and technical surveillance of the fence.

"No other force will have boots on the ground in our country". He said Pakistan believes in an open door policy with Afghanistan. Any coordinated operations with Afghanistan will be meant for actions by both the countries on their respective territories.

Ghafoor said that "There is a blame game as to why the Haqqani network is here", and said his country fought against all terrorists.

Speaking on the Raymond Davis issue, DG-ISPR he said that Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) was not the only institution involved in the matter.

Fata, Pakistan's tribal region bordering Afghanistan, is governed by Islamabad via an archaic set of laws and has seen multiple military operations against militant groups such as the Pakistani Taliban and al Qaeda after the so-called "war on terror" triggered by 9/11.
